Acronis vs JetBackup

    We just dumped acronis and switch all cPanels to JetBackup. Very flexible with its remote storage options. I would not suggest using NFS though.

    Definitely don't use anything NFS if it can be avoided - we don't support NFS at all - though some still have found ways to use NFS filesystems it requires some extra configuration and even then behavior can be unpredictable. As far as that I'm not personally too familiar with Acronis but I personally have used JetBackup prior to our officially supporting it and found it to be extremely well developed and flexible. I've had quite a few people say it's worked fantastically for them as well.

    And you are really comparing two different things. Acronis is block level / bare metal restore. JetBackup is doing incremental backups via rsync (and full MySQL database dumps). It's similar to cPanel's backup system, with more flexibility on scheduling and retention.

    Thank you very much. Now i'm using Acronis, but i need know if you recommend me use too Jetbackup at same time for do secondary backups. Or its right use WHM/cPanel default backup system for do secondary backups?. Have nice day!

    The question really is, does the cPanel backup fit your needs? If you need backups more than once a day or to a platform that cPanel does not support, then I'd say look at JetBackup. If cPanel fits your needs, why make it more complicated?

    I use both, but I prefer Acronis.

    We solely use JetBackup and it suits our needs. We got very good support from the buycPanel team, from where we used to purchase our licences from.

    We can purchase licenses for JetBackup from cPanel directly. For support, I assume we go direct to JetBackup.

    We test jet backup by using ftp method to make external backup on other servers and it is not pass good, there is an technical issue so we not recommend it it is good to use the same cpanel backup on other servers instead of jet-backup application.

    @BIGBANG ITS - have you reached out to the JetBackup team to let them know about the issue you experienced?
